What a great overview. I have some memory of the title. Must have seen it on a shelf-but maybe not read it.

A Dr Who actor turning novelist. So Gary Dobbs is following in a proud tradition!

Yes indeed, Evan! Gary's first book, as I understand it, it a western -- maybe we can convince him to come to the "other side" of crime fiction, too.


According to that article in Murder Ink, Carvic had 2 stories about Miss Seeton published --- 15 years before the novels --- in what he refers to as "a family magazine." They'd rejected the original story based upon the artist destroying her canvas. Anyone know what magazine? I'd love to read them!
